"Doctors" at work...be benignant – If you want to be treated like you are the one providing the service, that the staff is doing you a huge favor, and can tolerate unprofessional conduct by staff as well as owner, then this is the right place for you.
At the risk of sounding pretentious, I find it outrageous that the owner would condone such treatment of her clients by her staff. Newsflash: You are hair stylists and nothing more....you chose this path, so deal with it. Otherwise, go to college and pursue a career where you don't have to "survive" on tips and be resentful because of it.
PLASTIC WOMAN AT FRONT DESK – IT'S AMAZING HOW PEOPLE GO BACK TO A PLACE AFTER BEING TREATED LIKE GARBAGE BY THE OWNER OF THE PLACE. SHE'S RUDE, OBNOXIOUS, AND VERY TOUGH TO LOOK AT. LOOKS LIKE AN EPISODE OF FACE SURGERY'S GONE BAD. I GUESS THE REASON SHE'S IN BUSINESS STILL IS BECAUSE SHE HAS A GREAT STAFF WORKING THERE. WHICH MUST BE VERY TOUGH TO HANDLE WORKING ALL DAY UNDER THE SAME ROOF AS PLASTIC WOMAN. IT'S NO SURPRISE THAT SHE'S ALONE IN HER PERSONAL LIFE ALSO AS NO MAN COULD DEAL WITH HER. I GUESS KARMA IS A BITCH. AND TRUTHFULLY ONE WHO IS SUCH A BIATCH HAS TO LOOK AT THEMSELVES IN THE MIRROR AND CRY. 1-AT HOW GROSS THEY LOOK AND 2- HOW MIZZ THEY ARE. OH WELL THAT'S IT FOR NOW AS I'M SURE EVERYONE READING THIS AGREE'S WITH ME 100%. BYE-BYE...
Over rated & over priced. – Makeovers was definitely the go-to salon growing up for all of the "occasions" (communions, family parties, proms, etc.), I feel terrible looking back at the amount of money spent on over done & over priced (not to mention, tacky) up-do's, but that was the thing back then & Makeovers did not disappoint. However, I do have a lot to say about the new (or not so new), washed up, rude staff members.
From rude reception that make you feel like you're inconveniencing them by stepping foot in the door, who refuse to even acknowledge you unless they finish whatever important task they're doing behind the counter, to the extremely nasty & rough hair washers, to the most disappointing of them all - a hair dresser that can barely give you a decent blow out... after she finishes her cigarette break, that is. No, no, it's okay, I'll wait. I walked out $50 later & had to go home & re-do what should have been a simple blow out, myself. From someone with low maintenance, straight, natural colored hair - to walk out disappointed from start to finish absolutely blew my mind. I will not be returning to Makeovers, don't be fooled by their "new appearance" & over priced products that have probably been in the salon for years & years.
Wonderful Massage Therapist – I was given a gift certificate for a massage at Makeovers and I have to say, Angela the massage therapist has hands of gold. I have back and neck problems and often visit the chiropractor, but she knows her forms of massage for healing many ailments. She is very knowledgeable of the application of manipulation techniques to the body, She found my muscle issue and was very helpful in making me feel much better. It's was the best massage of my life!
Best Hair Stylist Ever! – First Time Client of ANGELA a true professional, awesome stylist and colorist. I look and feel brand new. My color looks great and my new hair cut and blowout is already receiving tons of compliments. I will definitely go back to Makeovers such a great salon!
ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE!!!!!! – From the moment I walked in, to the moment I walked out, I felt as if I am burdening every single person at Makeovers for offering them my money. The girl who washed my hair seemed annoyed to be doing the job and rushed right through it. Then after I got a blowout by Angela, I ended up looking like I was hit by lightening. She told me that she couldn't do anything more to fix my hair because it was "static-y". So I ended up paying money just to go home and redo my hair all by myself.
I definitely do not recommend this place to anyone!
great experience – I was accepted as a walk in for a hair cut. I had very long hair, past the middle of my back. I was given to a hair stylist named ANGELA. She did a wonderful job!! I am soooo happy with the cut she gave me. She took approx 4 inches off and gave me a great style. Exactly what i asked for!! I highly recommend ANGELA to all.
terrible – this place is completely overpriced, and the workers are rude... i will never go there again, there are much much better places than this, and they should know that, then maybe they'll work on acting professional and have better customer service, because as of now, there is not one person that has any.....
i went here like 3 years ago consistently for like a year and saw two different stylists; i remember liking my color and sometimes my cut when i left but the price was way too expensive; i've since gotten cut and color for way less at other places on staten island at the same quality; but the price was not the worst of it; it was how long it would take---i was there for like 3hours to get a cut and color and it was because the stylist would schedule someone at the same time as me while i was getting color; she'd give me a deep conditioning treatment (for like 20bucks) which she didn't even ask if i wanted so she would have the time to do someone else's hair; i thought this was shady and never went back.
The Best!!! – I had my hair (by Jayson) and make-up (by Debbie) done here for my wedding along with my entire bridal party. All I can say is not only did they do a fabulous job on myself, but every single bridesmaid looked stunning! No one had those generic hair-do's that I always wind up with when I'm in a wedding, each girl had a unique, gorgeous hairstyle, and everyone's make-up was perfectly tailored to them. Even with having to wait now and then, they still had us all out of the salon an hour earlier than I expected..and there were 12 of us. I found their prices to be completely reasonable, especially compared to some quotes I was given from other salons. They are absolute stylists, and thankfully they're also a supply store, they picked out the perfect pair of earrings for my wedding day that I had been looking for for 2 months.. the best!
